Manually Install of .deb file


(cyber thef) #1

I read faq, and forum terms
As i see that offtopic not much acceptable
But i have Question which i wanted to ask
BTW it is not fully offtopic


When when i download deb file , i need to use Gdebi
Installer , i wanted to know what exactly inside om it

I not able to extract deb file
I wanted to manually install it

amd not find info releted it at duck duck

Well for manually install use

 dpkg -i YourDebFile.deb 

And if You wanted to see inside files

 mkdir dptemp
 cd dptemp 

Add Your deb file here , then

ar x yourdeb.deb 

You may find

data.tar.xz/gz ( i forget because long time i not maintain deb packages)

Extract them

If gz

 tar  xfvz data.tar.gz 

if xz

 xz  -dc file.xz | tar xJvf - -C ~/dptemp/

Now you see

/sbin. /usr /bin

It mean those files you need to add in that locations
